We Create

A Sense of Home (ASOH) creates first ever homes for former foster youth who “age out” of the foster care system having never been adopted. ASOH’s village of volunteers comes in and supplies everything to create a home. Recipients pay it forward, working alongside a community of volunteers and an all former foster youth staff to create the homes. ASOH began in Los Angeles and ready to replicate in other regions.
